Continuous Assessment Learning Activity (CALA)
Continuous Assessment Learning Activity (CALA) is a student assessment regime that was set to be implemented during the second term in preparation for November 2021 Zimsec examinations. The first phase of the regime was set to run from July to September 2021.
CALA is any learning activity or assessment that requires learners to perform, and demonstrate their knowledge, understanding, and proficiency.
Under the regime, Zimsec candidates’ physical and behavioral skills are assessed continuously (coursework) to contribute 30 percent to their final marks. Summative or knowledge skills assessed during examinations contribute 70 percent to the candidate’s final grade.
External candidates wishing to sit for their exams in November will have to approach their examination centres for assessment
